        Policy description Target of 40% increase in energy productivity between 2015 and 2030.

        "To improve energy productivity we need to encourage more productive consumer choices from a range of more productive energy services. Largely, this can and should be achieved by effective markets—where incentives are efficient, information and tools to support decisions are effective, and competition and innovation is strong. However, where markets fail to provide efficient outcomes, standards and other direct measures can provide effective consumer protections."
